La vue d'ensemble délivre de l'inquiétude: notes sur un thème starobinskien, by Fernando Vidal

19/11/2013

Summary

The Critical Relation is one of the critical works of the twentieth century. In spite of the sum nature that his introductory text could have taken, this title has had an exegetical fortune which has doubtless partially obscured the extent of Jean Starobinski's reflection on criticism. In fact, Jean Starobinski never ceased to take part, with the elegance of the writer and an irenism, not without firmness, the debates that agitated the academic world from the seventies. The challenge of Approaches of meaningis twofold: on the one hand, to restore in its extent and diversity the metacritic reflection of Jean Starobinski; on the other hand, to give to read these writings while preserving the part of the historical conditioning which participated in their elaboration. At the request of the publishers, the texts have therefore not been rewritten by the author; editorial notes, formulated from research carried out in the archives and the correspondence of Jean Starobinski, recall however the contexts which determined these writings, or the friendly relations which raised them. "The Critique and the Authority", text of 1977, unpublished in French, could be found in the archives of the American magazine Daedalus, which had published its translation in English. An afterword by Michaël Comte,

Designed in two parts, Les Approches du sens documents Jean Starobinski's contribution to the historical and methodical observation of criticism, as well as its influence on critical reading and its issues. The second part, constituted by the proceedings of the conference At distance of box , allows us to follow, in the reflection of Jean Starobinski on the interpretation and in its activity of interpreter, the crossed paths of the critical distance and a critic distance; in the fields of philosophy, history, arts and sciences, this counterpoint of identification and distance which, at the heart of Starobinskian criticism, also reflects and illuminates the tensions that determine all knowledge.
